True.

If you walk from France to Nigeria, at what point exactly does "white" stop and "black" begin. If you walk from Beijing to Ukraine, where does "white" start.

Calling someone "asian", "white", "black", or "hispanic", might make sense within the US, but in some places, people will have no idea what your even talking about.

I know a guy who is from Urumqi, a city in the northwestern part of China.

He speaks with a strong Chinese accent, and is totally Chinese, but he hardly looks like the people from other parts of China. He has blondish hair, and you would probably call him white.

In Xinjiang, some people look very "white", others look "asian", and many look like some mix of the two. Or even "asian" but with blond hair and green eyes.

You might say this happened because a group asian people and a group of white people mixed together, but that's not really what happened at all.

As you travel across the world, light skin gradually fades into dark skin one way, and dark skin gradually faded into light skin another way. It is an gradual shade, not "black" and "white", there wasn't population bottlenecking either. There is no perfect "border" where one race crosses into another, so "races" are impossible to define in terms of biology and genetics, because it requires randomly choosing a point of reference, to represent the baseline of a certain race. People from Xinjiang, as well as much of Russia, and Central Asia, are not "mixed race", nor are they more physically diverse than people from any other parts of the world, they are simply in-between the two points that, Americans (for example), are most familiar with. If your from the US, your probably familiar with further East Asians and Europeans, this is where American immigration comes from, as well as being large population centers. On the other hand, someone from Russia, is probably also familiar with Central Asians (people from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, ect.).

Its only really a combination of 6-10 individual genes that effect what race you look like. All alleles are found around the world, just in different frequencies. If one trait has a high frequency in Beijing, medium frequency in Ukraine, then it might have something like a medium-high frequency in Central Asia.

Its mainly the overall combination, rather than a single trait in particular that affect a persons appearance. A certain few traits are common in Beijing, for example, but there are many people with one, or maybe two of these traits, expressed or recessively carried, in any population of the world. It becomes less and less likely to inherit combination three or four of these uncommon traits just by chance, but of course every now and then it happens.

In Central Asia, many people inherit a combination of traits which just happen to appear more like one side or another by chance, but the population isn't actually any more physically diverse overall. The guy I know has a sister and she looks much more "asian" than he does, neither of them were adopted, and you can still easily see the resemblance between them.

Uyghur Chinese People from Xinjiang:

Some places just happen to have people who appear similar by chance, even if there is no connection, many people from Papua New Guinea, and much of Eastern Indonesia appear somewhat similar to African Americans, as well as people from certain parts of Africa. But the resemblance is by complete chance. And, on top of that, there are many people in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia with blond hair. The chance of two unrelated populations appearing similar by chance is high, since were only talking about 6-10 traits involved.

Papua New Guinea People:

Alaska fades into Siberia which fades into Central Asia which fades into the Middle east which fades into Africa. There were never clear lines of division anywhere.

DNA tests can compare someones DNA to a sample population in a database. For example, a company might take samples from some people who live in modern day Rome, and find a number of alleles that are frequent in the population, and the degree someone's DNA resembles the frequencies from the sample is what "percentage Itallian" they are.

But there is no such a thing as "Itallian DNA".

"Black" and "White", should not be applied as an internationally universal part of humans, because its not. Calling people from the Papua province in Indonesia "black" is like an Indonesian calling an African American "Papuan".
